Great Lakes Maritime Academy visits: The visit consists of a discussion/presentation about the academy (including the application process, career and cadets), a walking tour of the campus (including the ship) followed by group and/or individual meetings. If scheduling permits, the tour will be led by cadets. We require individuals to schedule an appointment prior to making travel plans.
